A big "thank you" to the City of Santa Clarita for all the new street signs! They are easy to read, and look great with the city seal included in the design. Thank you for these helpful additions to city intersections.
Vinton Lampton's assertion that only New Orleans residents and Democrats deplored Katrina ("God bless the tough Midwesterners," Letters, July 6) reveals that he is deaf to all but Republican indoctrination.
On Sunday, June 29, a letter was read at all Mormon worship services worldwide calling on members to contribute their time and money to help pass the California initiative this November that would limit marriage to different-gender couples. The letter, from the Office of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, said, "The Church's teaching and position on this moral issue are unequivocal. Marriage between a man and a woman ...
Since the debtor is still in possession, the debtor, Newhall Land will still be paying the salaries of its executive officers, while those to whom they owe substantial debts must bite the bullet.
It's apparent that our City Council has heard enough from the public whom it represents. Since the founding of Santa Clarita in 1987, we have had a great opportunity to address and petition our city government during the public participation portion at our City Council meetings. Over the last two years, several issues - like the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital expansion, the proposed materials-recovery facility, traffic on Benz Road and the Smiser Mule Ranch ...

The Signal's apologetic approach (Signal editorial, June 27) to our city manager's goals, whether we call it urbanization or something else, seems to ignore the downsides of massive build-outs.
In response to Jim Mullen's article ("Why my father was no Tim Russert," June 25, 2008), first let me start off by offering my condolences for the loss of his father. He must be so very proud of him.
Just a few thoughts about professional whiners in our city: n Benz Road: Yes, you guys got screwed when the city made your street a through road. The city has tried to deter the "shortcut" but cannot seem to get it right. The solution is very easy. Build a big block wall at Copper Hill, resealing the street once again. n Canvas/Linda Vista: These people have written the book on whining. ...
Regarding the proposed home car wash ban article ("Ban on home carwashing?" June 25):
I swore that if I made it home, I would never complain about hot summer days again. As you make the short trip from your air-conditioned car to whatever air-conditioned building you are going to, consider this: On a June day in Baghdad it was 115 degrees with blowing dust. As they move into this month, the average daily high temperatures there will steadily rise to above 130 degrees. The temperature will only start to ...
As summer begins with triple-digit weather, so heats up SCV's debate regarding acceptable growth in our fine city.
It's amazing how the people in the Midwest are enduring all the problems associated with floods. I don't know how they cope with such devastation.
Thanks to "The Signal's salutes this years grads" (June 20). Just think, we have 12 high schools in our valley doing such a great job for our kids and adults, making certain that they cover all the bases for learning and improvement.
While statistics are fed to media outlets like this paper to prop up the administration's and Rep. Buck McKeon's decision to support the surge, the facts ignored are that the weekly rate of American wounded has not gone down. The historical wounded report is found at icasualties.org, and it shows that in 2008 the number of wounded soldiers averages approximately 15 per week, which is the same average as the year before.
I quote a recent editorial contribution by a Santa Clarita City Council member: "Public participation is an essential way ... to influence the decision-making process."
I read with interest the article on the effects of the Canada – U.S. pipeline and its relationship to climate change.
Here is what gets me: The Republicans are always asking, where are the jobs? Well as of March 1, 2013, they are going to let thousands of people get laid off.
The toll roads are great for the young people but how about us older ones that still like to get out and see things. ? How about making it free for older people?
Have you ever seen the Investigation Discovery shows such as "Solved", "Disappeared", or "Extreme Forensics"?

In a Feb. 22 Letter to the Editor in The Signal, Brian Baker claims that President Obama is a "socialist."
The recent movie "Lincoln" was highly acclaimed in this year's Oscar-considerations.
A key difference between Left and Right is that when the Right transgresses the freedom of others, it violates its own tenets.
Regarding Alice Khosravy's column "California is at bottom for business," (Feb. 22), Khosravy's excellent commentary was so clear and so factual citing a huge - if not t-h-e huge - problem that is at the core of California being on life support as a state, a once-thriving, enviable state.
The Boy Scouts of America need to allow gays into their organization because that is the moral imperative, if you will, toward "a more perfect union."
